Find your cable that goes to your throttle body and look for a screw on a fixed plate, the screw should be touching a cam leaver for the throttle butterfly. if the is no screw it may have rattled out and you may have lost it. Or the idle is done by the computer i in the case you may have a fuilty sensor or computer.

sounds like the idle air screw needs adjusted out on the carb, to slow the engine.. did you just get the vehicle, and trying to fix it up, or is this something that just happened??

How to adjust choke on 87 honda accord

It might just need cleaning. Spray some PB Blaster around the throttle arm where the cable connects to at the base of the carb, and see if that frees up the flaps. And while spraying, fiddle with the throttle linkage.

How do you idle up a 1991 honda accord

Look for a screw or nut that turns.Look at the cable that is connected to your accelerator.You can push back on the throttle and hear the engine race.The adjusting screw should be there.A few things to note....Wait until the engine has warmed up and the choke off..check the auto choke is working before you play with the idle...replace the air increasing the idle the Engine will be running"richer" before you adjust anything I would invest in a complete tune-up.The above info is for all carburator engines only.Good Luck.

I have a 88 honda accord with carb that i cant get to idle down

Should be an idle adjusting screw on the side of the carburator that you can adjust to move your idle down.

Rough idle stalls at low rpm's

hello first check your idle with the car running foot on brake see were your rpm reading is if your below 500rpm check your label underhood for your curb idle setting second see if theres a adjustment screw you can increase were your gas cable lever rest against your set screw underhood if you feel confident enough remove your iac motor idle air control valve if the bore were the end of the pintle extracts out to close has varnish builup our carbon it will stick creating vacuum leak type senario causing stalling rough idle sometimes even no start conditions good luck
